People Share Which Two Jobs Sound Suspicious If A Person Does Both

Suppose you're out at your next dinner party and you find yourself enjoying some small talk with one of the guests. You tell them you're in sales. They tell you they're a doctor.

Oh, and they also moonlight as a funeral home director.

Hmmm... sounds like a conflict of interest, no? At least enough of one to give that person the side-eye.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrustPad asked the online community:

"What two jobs are fine on their own but suspicious if you work both of them?"

"My grandpa and dad used to be their rural city’s ambulance drivers as well as the mortician service…until it was ruled a conflict of interest."

Understandably.

One wonders how long they ran it!

"I once knew a guy..."

"I once knew a guy who worked in a porn store (90s small town dirty-ass porn store) at night, and drove an ice cream truck by day. Same customers sometimes…"

TruthOrTruthy

I mean, many of us like porn as much as we like ice cream so is this really a problem?

"I bet..."

"Wedding planner and divorce lawyer. I bet they'd make a fortune in Las Vegas."

Curses, you're right!

Why didn't I think of this?

"Work for..."

"Work for a liposuction clinic by day, sell homemade soap by night."

Oh, dear.

Not a thought I thought I'd have in my head this late at night.

"Head of..."

"Head of the FDA and a board member of a pharmaceutical or food company."

nameforus

You know, given the state of American politics, it's truly only a matter of time.

"Spider-Man..."

"Spider-Man and someone who makes their living selling pictures of Spider-Man."

Something tells me we've seen this before.

I wonder where...

"My old partner..."

"My old partner on the ambulance’s family owned a funeral parlor. We used to joke that you know we’re not getting a cardiac arrest back when Kyle starts handing out business cards."

Kyle knew exactly what he was doing.

Did you keep an eye on Kyle, by the way?

"A friend of mine..."

"Bartender and substance abuse counselor. A friend of mine held both at the same time."

NachiseThrowaway

Bartenders are practically budget therapists, anyway, so this tracks.

"A chemistry teacher..."

"A chemistry teacher and a car wash owner."

Crunchnuggz

Another one I think we've seen before... somewhere out there works a chemistry teacher who happens to own a car wash and who constantly has to prove that it's legit.

"Day trader..."

"Day trader and being a member of Congress... oh wait."

PayYourBills

I mean... you say this like it's something out of the ordinary!

Honestly, the next time you're on a date with someone who has more than one line of work, you might want to check what they are... especially if they happen to run a funeral home.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Redditor detroit_michigldan wanted to discuss all the best ways to crash and burn when trying to make a romantic connection. They asked:

"You're on a date and it's going really great. What can another person say to ruin it completely?"

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
